    Was Roger Deakins the guy that worked with Sam Mendes for American Beauty and Road to Perdition? He was awesome. He may have also worked with Mendes for Jarhead too, but I am pretty sure Mendes changed cinematographer for that one one.

    Take a look at Road to Perdition trailer, you can see its impressiveness:

    Also, what about Children of Men? The car shootout scene was mesmeric. Filmed in ONE LONG TAKE (no edits or change of camera angles). What closely, what an impressive technical achievement:

    Deakins worked on Jarhead and others like Shawshank Redemption (one of my fav films), Revolutionary Road with Sam Mendes (I think that is the film you meant) and No Country for Old Men

    Absolutely, it's up there being one of the best technically filmed scene I've seen

    This is really irritating me because I know there is someone I absolutely love that I can't remember. The name is on the tip of my tongue.
